The Passion Museum
The Passion Museum, housed in the Church of Santa Marta’s apse and sacristy, was inaugurated in August 2005. The proposed layout is aimed to show objects as witnesses of the time, but mostly as vehicles to tell people’s stories.
A Museum made by People, not only by findings and roles. During their tour, visitors can admire documents regarding the history of the Passion of Sordevolo, a collection of videos, pictures, texts and object testifying the glorious past of this sacred representation of folk theatre.
The Associazione Teatro Popolare di Sordevolo wanted to create this museum to never forget the tradition.
The Passion’s history exposed in this museum represents the heart of the town of Sordevolo, told with the simplicity of those who take part in the folk theatre at a level which involves the artistic sense, as well as people deep in their very soul. It is not an occasional event in the inhabitants’ lives, but rather an Event, a Happening in the fullest and deepest meaning of the word, a moment in life that engages and animates the whole community of Sordevolo.
This is our Passion of Sordevolo’s real success.
